Jake Peavy to make a rehab start for AA Birmingham on Friday

Merkin @ CWS:

Jake Peavy took another step toward a Major League comeback from 2010 season-ending experimental surgery to reattach the tendon that anchors the latissimus dorsi muscle to the rear of the shoulder by throwing 59 pitches over four innings in a simulated Minor League intrasquad game at Camelback Ranch in Glendale, Ariz., on Sunday.

Next up for Peavy is a Friday start for Double-A Birmingham at Montgomery, Ala., where he hopes to work five innings and throw 75 pitches.

… Peavy worked the first inning out of a full windup and the next three from the stretch. He worked primarily on fastball command.

“Pitching out of the stretch is where you make your biggest pitches,” Peavy said. “You want to feel comfortable in the stretch.

“There are a lot of young [Minor League] guys swinging, and I could get a lot of swings and misses. But pitching is about fastball command, and that’s where it starts. Certainly, I could tell I started fatiguing in the fourth. But I did feel better than I did on Tuesday.”


  1. if peavy returns and has a solid season, then we will be in very good shape because the offence is great and every body else in the central is doing poorly!

    so far in the central it looks good for us. kc is having a good start, so if we take care of buissiness at kc tommorro by taking one or two if possible! the rest have tough series ahead of them. twins at new york, tigers at baltimore (baltimore has played well and I belive will continue to play well) and the red sox at clevland. so with a 2 game series with kc and 4 at home with the rays, I expect the sox to take the early lead in the race.

    • yeah. if peavy even has an ok season the sox will be in a very good shape. the kotsay->dunn change will be huge.

      and I think the rays won’t have longoria when we play them.

      • I did hear about longoria being out for at least 3 weeks which will benifit the sox in both 4 game series they play soon. the rays will be in last place in the east, so they should get beat up on. 8 games against our sox early, I feel bad for them. maybe buerhle will throw another perfect game against them LOL.

        • I didn’t knew the sox are playing another series against the rays 1 week after their 1st series!

          good timing
